“That’s my idol, I’m on DMX’s first single, that’s like big bruh,” Machine Gun Kelly told AllHipHop.com. “I’m on his first single, he’s on my album. That’s the man, bow to him.” MGK said he was an inspiration.
Bullying was something MGK could relate to, growing up in a troubled household in Cleveland. “He has a priceless story. I’m just saying be different, that was music I could run away to [when] me and my pops fell out.”
DMX’s music, which has always been laced with spirituality, helped him through the tough times.
“When my mom left and all that other s**t, fights with kids at school, getting picked on, DMX was that man, I always put on some DMX and imagined myself beating people up.”
